Award of $1,000 to a USA or Canada organization, business, group, or individual in recognition of an exceptional project that contributed to the public’s understanding and appreciation of history. Consideration will be given to activities such as media projects, exhibits, written works, and public programming completed within the last two calendar years.

Acknowledging the value of historical understanding to the general public, and the fact that this understanding results from a variety of public history projects, the National Council on Public History’s Outstanding Public History Project Award recognizes excellence in work completed within the previous two calendar years that contributes to a broader public reflection and appreciation of the past or that serves as a model of professional public history practice.  

Projects–from digital to print, and from exhibits to brochures to films may be nominated. These projects include, but are not limited to, the following areas:

  • Media – webpages, web-based video, audio, blogs, documentaries, and films (DVD, etc.)
  • Exhibits – in museums, cultural centers, and other public venues
  • Public Programs – lecture series, walking tours, oral history projects, outreach activity, educational offerings, workshops, etc.
  • Written Works – research, reports, brochures, working papers, etc. or historical fiction (including books), that contribute to larger public history efforts to broaden public history understanding.
